This prologue begins with a brief discussion of the notion of ‘Tudor literature’. It then looks at the ‘Tudorness’ of sixteenth-century literature by looking at one of the period's many neglected but interesting and important poems: William Baldwin's Funerals of King Edward VI. Finally, it considers the problems of labels, periodization, and canonicity.

Keywords: William Black; Funerals of King Edward; labels; periodization; canonicity
